Just wondering if anybody knew what a/the canonical jQuery 1.4.2 checkbox plugin is.

I'd rather it used the default jQuery themes. I had been planning on using jqueryui-checkbox, and am trying to get it to work with 1.4.2, but figured I'd ask if someone new of a better/updated one.

Just be aware that that's a 3rd-party plugin like any other. It's not any official part of jQuery UI -- despite its name.

What does a checkbox plugin need to do for you? Just styling?

Yeah, but with the icons from the jQuery themes.

There are a couple of other options I'm looking at, but none seem to use the jQuery UI themes... not sure what I'm going to do, since I had planned on using the official autocomplete widget. After seeing some of the other options available, I'm not sure anymore.

I'm not sure what you're actually looking for. What does autocomplete have to do with checkboxes?

Nothing functionality-wise, but the styling needs to be identical.

Guess that's a level of detail I never bother with. The browser's rendering of the checkboxes is fine with me.

If you don't mind a radically different, but matching, appearance, you could check out jQuery UI's buttonset. It will style the checkboxes as a button bar with sticky behavior.

Already tried that, but I don't think it really fits with the look/feel of the UI I want.

The only issue is that the default styles for checkboxes, radiobuttons, and file selects are... suboptimal, and vary across browsers a fair amount. I want them to blend in a bit better, but we don't have a competent designer/UI engineer, so I'm off-the-shelfing it.
